A paparazzi's dream lens.
Check out the Body and Design page image. See the twin arrows encircling the number 50 on the lens? That's about how many years that Leica lens is designed to last. Go and have a look at your late model Nikon, Canon, etc., lenses (it'll be on the box if not on the lens). I had the the Nikkor 12 to 24mm 2.8 briefly last year and it said 10. I guess that's why Leicas cost what they do. The lenses at least.
Robert Evagelista: I had 6 Digital Cameras since 2001. And this Camera makes me Emotional.This is the best one I have used. The one that keeps me excited everyday.Fastest in everything, Sharpest, Cleanest, Great color, Very versatile, Complete bang for the buck. Amazing lens selection at the most reasonable price. Bleeding edge Software and functions. It makes me drop down in tears. I cant believe I was able to save up and get the pre-order and find out that it will go way above my expectation. Thank you olympus, this year was very tough for me, but you are a source of my inspiration... Looking forward to weekend adventures with you.!
Yep, I totally agree. I've owned many cameras, film and digital, but nothing comes close to my O-MD E-M1. Not since a stint with an OM2 Spot Program back in the '80s, have I had so much fun with, and been so impressed by a camera. So glad I offloaded my Nikon D600 and it's bulky everything. That was a nice camera too, but there are too many benefits of this system, like great little lenses, everything's more affordable, way lighter kit, more intuitive GUI, touch screen focus/shoot. I could go on...
Mtsuoka: On second thought this Film era SLR design is kind of old fashioned.reminds me of the old film SLRSI'd still prefer the RF styling
Ha ha, love it.
